We're coming back to Caye Caulker next month. We've never gone out on a fishing trip from there. Is this a good time to go? What would we likely catch? Do you have any suggestions on who would be good to go with. We're not serious about fishing and won't be bringing gear with us. It just seems like something we should do in between snorkeling trips.

Thanks. It was 14 here last night and we're looking forward to getting warm.

Hey Al,

Your choices are:

1) Reef Fishing - You'll be behind the reef with generally low seas, fishing for snapper (mostly yellow and red) and barracuda. You can anchor up or drift with bait on the bottom or you'll troll with spinners, spoons, jigs or bait.

2) Flats Fishing - You'll travel to the flats and attempt to fly fish. Certainly an acquired skill, you could ask for lessons but it aint that easy. You'll catch tarpon, permit and bonefish (or at least try). You will probably throw these fish back if you are able to get them aboard.

3) Deep Sea - You'll go outside the reef, either troll or drop bait. Must be a calm day and must be a bigger boat with lots of anchor line if you want to drop for bottom fish. You'll catch wahoo, sailfish, and possibly marlin while you troll and large grouper and snapper if you bait at the bottom.

Ask around the island for guides. The fishing options will vary with conditions. Stop by Anglers Abroad fly shop near the split, they know most of the guides on the island.

Mmmmmm... this just reinforces the desire to fish next time we make it down. We live in the northwest portion of the US, and I've been raised doing creek, river and some lake fishing. Just now learning to fly fish.

Thanks. I tried fly fishing once and that didn't go well. Sounds like reef fishing might be the deal.
